Poland officially joins CERIC-ERIC as full member
2nd March 2016

Poland has formally entered CERIC-ERIC, with the decision of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education to become a member, and with the approval of the General Assembly of CERIC-ERIC.

With this decision, the National Synchrotron Radiation Centre SOLARIS in Krakow has been formally appointed as the Polish Partner Facility in CERIC-ERIC. Starting from this year, therefore, Poland will offer free open access to the techniques of SOLARIS to CERIC international users, selected by peer review. This will allow integrating these techniques with those available in the other Partner Facilities of CERIC-ERIC in Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Romania and Slovenia.

The Polish Ministry has designated Prof. Marek Stankiewicz, Director of SOLARIS, and Mr. Michał Rybiński, Chief Expert in the Department of Innovation and Development of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as the Polish delegates to the CERIC-ERIC General Assembly, in compliance with art. 11 of the CERIC Statute.

Carlo Rizzuto Chair of the CERIC General Assembly, Jana Kolar CERIC Executive Director, and the other CERIC governing bodies welcomed with great enthusiasm this new entry to the distributed research infrastructure and expressed their best wishes for long and fruitful cooperation.
